Chris Chope presses Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government for date to report on fit & proper person licence for Park Home Operators.
Christopher Chope Conservative, Christchurch
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, when the draft guidance on fit and proper person licensing for park home operators will be (a) finalised and (b) published.
Eddie Hughes Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Housing, Communities and Local Government)
The fit and proper person test for park home site operators will come into force in two parts - on 1 July, by which time local authorities must be prepared to receive applications and on 1 October, by which time all park home site operators must have submitted an application to the relevant local authority.
To assist local authorities and site owners, we plan to publish non-statutory guidance on the implementation of the fit and proper person test by the end of May.
